What are Mailing Lists?

A way of having a group discussion with list subscribers by email. Emails are sent to all list subscribers.

Popular mailing list programs, like Listserv and Majordomo, allow for automated subscription and un-subscription from a mailing list.

Some hosting plans allow the creation of mailing lists.

There are 3 standard modes most email servers can operate.

One to many - useful for newsletters

Many to many - anyone can send the group an email

Many to many moderated - same as above but the email must be approved
